Loren is the American owner and Elyot is his Cuban wife run this small 5 bedroom lodging situated just behind the main street in Langres. Langres is an old fortified Gaul/Roman walled town which saw action keeping out the English in the 100 year war.
The house which is 100 years old used to belong to a doctor and the first thing you notice when you enter the house past the green gates and narrow driveway is the delightful mosaic floor and the elegant curved staicase topped with crytal balls on the newel posts.
The house is very child friendly as Loren and Elyot have two young children of their own and it is quite normal to see toys strewn around the downstairs sitting room. The downside of this is the fact that if you want a quiet rest in your room in the afternoon you will probably have the sounds of children running around echoing through the house.
Loren is very accomodating allowing you to make free local calls on his house telephone and making your eggs to order with your breakfast. Breakfast is continental, with freshly squeezed orange juice, local jams, good coffee and a selection of teas and tisanes on offer. All this while classical music plays in the background.
Our room was the Royale which used to be the doctors bedroom with views over the countryside and lake. It was a good size with a comfortable bed, but lacked a chest of drawers to put clothing away. At 108 Euros per night it is slightly more expensive than the other rooms but the space is worth the extra cost.There is satellite television in the room but you need binoculars to view the wall mounted television which is the size of a computer screen.
The bathroom was pleasant and supplied with shower gel and bath salts. Towels were clean and good quality and were changed daily if you left them on the floor.
All in all a good place to stay to explore Dijon and Beaune or sample the wines of Burgundy or the champagne region.
